    Whereas the lineage of the 151st Infantry Regiment of the Indiana National Guard dates back to the formation of the 2nd Regiment of Indiana Volunteers in June 1846;

    Whereas in 1968, Company D of the 151st Infantry Regiment of the Indiana National Guard was activated in preparation for deployment to Vietnam;

    Whereas Company D of the 151st Infantry Regiment was commonly referred to as the “Indiana Rangers”;

    Whereas in December of 1968, the Indiana Rangers were deployed to Vietnam;

    Whereas the Indiana Rangers served in Vietnam from December of 1968 to November of 1969;

    Whereas the Indiana Rangers earned more decorations during their year of service in Vietnam than any other Army infantry company during any 1-year period in the Vietnam War; and

    Whereas in November of 1969, the Indiana Rangers returned to Indiana: Now, therefore, be it
